FROM: Tufts Technology Services
Phishing is once again on the rise, and hundreds of Tufts staff and faculty are reporting that they have received phishing messages looking as though they originated from an account called “Tufts payroll.” These messages are not from Tufts and are spam/phishing email sent with the intention to steal your personal information.
Tufts Technology Services (TTS) has reported and blocked the sites where it appears the attacks are originating.
What You Should Do
The TTS Service Desk advises that you do the following if you believe you received one of these messages:
- DO NOT click on the link
- DELETE suspicious email messages immediately
- DO NOT enter or share your Tufts account information
- If not already in place, install and use the most current version of Antivirus software
If you have any concerns or think you were impacted by a phishing attack or malware (software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems), please contact the TTS Service Desk at (617) 627-3376. Read more email security tips.
